I noticed that after I got married, my spending habits have changed dramatically. I don’t have the urge to shop now. That or maybe, I’m just not overly exposed to the things women love (e.g. clothes, shoes, jewelries, etc.). And it doesn’t help that we hardly hit the mall these days.
As for the hubby, I think he’s also changed. It’s a given that he’s very fond of gadgets. He’s a techie, after all. If I’m not mistaken, he plans to get an iPhone 5 this year. He also loves looking at cars and model kits when we’re at the mall. But these he can’t buy in an instant as we’re still paying for our car. Haha.

Married couples have different priorities. While some wish to have babies right after the wedding, others plan their lives based on other important factors like career, emotional preparedness and financial independence, etc. As with the hubby and I, we want to have a baby this year or the next. For us, it’s the right timing before we could start planning on realizing our other joint goals in life.
For us, babies are a gift from God. It’s not some gift or prize that you receive when you’ve done something good. It’s more of a gift from the one above that is given to those who seek, for them to cherish forever. I don’t know with you but I always get thrilled by the thought of having our baby someday.

Oh how time flies! I can’t believe we’re now married for a month! Yes, it’s one awesome month filled with happiness and excitement over the little details in our very young marriage. Wow, I just feel so great today.
happy first month to us!
Life is good, so far, and we’re very thankful to our families and friends who have been showering us with love and support since our big day. Living in a separate house away from family is quite new to my hubby (not so much to me because I lived alone at one point in my college life!) but I can tell he’s coping well with it. I particularly love how we’re adjusting to married life and enjoying every moment of the process.

Our weekends in the past weeks were spent in our Bacoor home. It’s just the two of us, my hubby and I. We normally just relax on Saturdays and on Sundays, we go to church first thing in the morning. It’s a good thing that there’s a church near our place.
Holy Trinity Parish Church in San Nicolas, Bacoor, is pretty new. It’s not even fully-painted and furnished yet. But I like how it’s big and airy. The parish community is quite big, too, and is growing continuously. Outside the church is a wide complex dotted with shops, food stalls and public parking spaces. You’ll be amazed at how comprehensive the shops there are. I saw vegetable, fruit and meat shops as well as general merchandise stores. I even spotted a dog shop selling cute puppies, dog food and supplies including wooden dog houses similar to those wooden dog crates at DogKennels.com. Imagine that!

Right after the wedding comes the adjustment period. It starts when you and your partner (in my case, it’s my dear husband) move to your new house. The moment you sleep together in one bed, you feel the need to adjust. For me, it was more like adjusting to the thought that from that time on, I will sleep with the same man every night and welcome each day in the arms of the same person.
The adjustment period may be thought-provoking and worrisome for many people, but I find it quite manageable and fun, too. Perhaps, it’s because I went steady with my man for seven years before we decided to tie the knot. Such a long period of time gave me most, if not all, of the information I needed to know about him. I also saw him and spent time with him almost everyday in the last seven years so if there was anything I needed to know, I’m sure I’ve learned of it prior to our big day.
